Career Guidance

Rachel Cook has studied film at The University of Southern California and Duke University, and Economics and Business at Duke and The Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College. She worked for awhile as an Equities and Eurodollar Futures Trader in Chicago and New York while studying improv and comedy writing at the iO and Second City. The Microlending Film Project, her first feature, tells the story of mothers, wives, daughters—and entrepreneurs. Armed with microloans invested in increments often as small as $25, these women work to launch businesses, pulling themselves and their families out of poverty.
